Good that you remind me CA.

I am gonna do that soon. Maybe as the next release.
Read up on them a bit and will focus on the most older types. Like those powered by handpumps and built-in-pumps.


Also, the re-release of my previous charts will follow the same formula as my bow/crossbow chart as:

Sling weapons
  • sling
  • staff sling
  • shotgun sling
  • kestrosphendone



Spear and related
  • spear
  • amentum


Modern weapons
  • arquebus
  • airgun
  • slingshot



Other weapons
  • blowgun
  • atlatl
  • bola
  • Morphy's semisling



I wanted to place the atlatl in the Spear and Related category until I realized that atlatls don't actually throw spears.
Might grade some kind of flintlock gun but it is a more complex term than I knew.

Have you looked at airguns yet ?

One of the things I remember from the gun museum in the Buffalo bill centre in cody, wyoming, was the collection of air guns they had - dating back to the napoleonic wars.
Yes really.
In napoleons time air guns were actually a snipers weapon. They were .50 calibre and compared to a black powder gun - silent and with no huge plume of smoke to give you away.

No idea on the range, but pretty sure they had rifled barrels.

I'll have to dig put the pictures.

But until that point, I had no idea that serious airguns went back that far and were actually used in serious combat.

From what i read the first airguns date back to 1500's, this was also very surprising to me when I found out about this, I always thought airguns were invention of mid to late 1800's with the advancing industrial revolution.

Edit: I meant to say 19th century but wrote 1900's

Here in the Netherlands, we have no real restrictions on air guns, you only have to be 18 +, and you can own a .50  whistle
there are some real nice magazine fed 9 mm air guns for sale here as well.

Here in czechia you can have max 16J airgun before you need a licence, but you still have to be 18+
I find it funny how I always exceed that by far with just string and stones Cheesy

woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
That's a big and powerful airgun.

I have one of those that you 'crack up' in the middle to load it.
If there was a gap in ease of use and accuracy from using a sling to a pellet bow then that gap only amplifies when moving to an airgun. Such a weird feeling to take aim at a target, not having used the gun for years, and then hit 5 centimetres besides the centre of your target 20 meters away.

One can really feel why primitive weapons are primitive and got beaten to the dust by firearms.  Undecided

Don't you have really lax firearm laws?
Here in [undisclosed northern European country] you can own a 4,5 mm, 25 J airgun without any restrictions if you are 18+.
